There’s nothing quite like being the top-selling automobile for any car brand.
The Cadillac XT5 hasn’t been around for long, though has taken the brand on its back to bring them to manufacturer heaven. With a luxurious design and a focus on utility, the XT5 has a little bit of something for everyone.
A Brief History of the Cadillac XT5
The Cadillac XT5 was originally introduced at the Dubai Motor Show back in November 2015 before replacing the Cadillac SRX for the 2016 year. It is the second automobile in the long line of Cadillacs to use the alphanumeric name scheme, as well as the very first vehicle in Cadillac’s crossover series. In only a few years, it became Cadillac’s best-selling model throughout the world.
Technology and Performance of a Champion – The Cadillac XT5
The 2019 Cadillac XT5 utilizes a 3.6L V-6 engine that is incredibly quiet and works like a dream when pushed to its limits. The engine is paired with front-wheel-drive.
What we truly love about the XT5 is the long list of premium features, including the in-dash navigation, the 14-speaker Bose audio system, lane-keeping assist, automated emergency braking, automatic high-beams, and LED headlamps. All XT5 models come with the CUE 8.0” touchscreen infotainment system as well.
A Timeline of the Cadillac XT5 (2016-Present)
The Cadillac XT5 is still very much in its first generation, though it will see some major updates in the 2020 year. The 2020 XT5 will receive a bright and metallic-patterned grille of the Premium trim level, as well as a darker-colored grille on the Sport trim level.
GM will include their brand new 2.0L turbocharged inline-four engine that will put out 237 horsepower. They will also add a brand new rotary controller for the CUE system.

The Cadillac XT5 – Luxury On the Move
When Cadillac introduced the XT5 back in 2016, they probably never guessed that it would become one of their best-selling vehicles. With a chiseled and luxurious look, you wouldn’t expect it to be so utility-focused either. Luckily, the Cadillac XT5 is both of those things. With new iterations of the crossover vehicles now on the market, we can only hope that the beauty of the XT5 remains intact as the years move forward.
